Health care rebuttals?
Heres what I have so far- 1.Opening statement- I believe that nationalizing the Health insurance in America would be a terrible idea because at the condition that this country is in this would just cause more debt for this country, and it is also up to the people whether they want government coverage.
2.Private health care companies have make sure they reach government health insurance requirements
3.It will cost billions of dollars possibly even trillions, example it will cost over 100,000 billion dollars a year, and at this current time this countries debt is already a very high so therefore it would create just more debt so I believe it would not be appropriate at this time.
4.Taxes for every American will increase by 1-2?epending on how much they make. In order to pay off the costs for health reform.
5.There will be long waiting lists for cat scans, MRI’s, and surgerys, as Europe and Canada have expercinced because they have Socialized Medicine.
6.Private health insurance rates will be increased.1
7.The health care bill will put many private health insurances out of business
8.People who are under the nation health insurance coverage will not always be able to choose there docter or practioner.
9.You will need to report to your local government when you are traveling because in the event you have health services. (Mandate- a document giving a command)
10.Will cause tax on job growth. If they don’t meet government health insurance requirements they will have tax penalty on pay roll.
11. The NFIB the leading small business assocation, opposes the health care bill due to the fact 86 percent of small businesses who offer coverage only offer one plan. Small employers and their employees want the ability to choose from a variety of affordable plans. H.R. 3200 reduces options available to small businesses. The bill gives a political board the power to determine whether an employer plan is “acceptable.” It does nothing to ensure that the new plans will be less expensive than what small employers are paying today.
12.Americans who are not covered will be forced to pay a fine or get insured by 2014.
What is the difference between socialized medicine and the health care bill? What do you mean less poverty this isnt just going to get more people off the streets its just simply getting them health care.
The reason why this wont take action until 2014 is because it is going to cost so much more money and therefore they must wait till the goverment to have enough funding to begin.

Would you willingly and knowingly sign a contract to purchase a new care, paying higher monthly payments for 10 years, cutting back on other things you hold near and dear to you so that you could be allowed to drive this new car for all of 6 years?
From the "non-partisan" Congressional Budget Office:
You are going to see tax increases of $500,000,000,000 over the next 10 years.
You are going to witness cuts in Medicare (which not only covers Grandma and Grandpa, but also the promised health care coverage of our retired military) of $523,000,000,000 over the next 10 years.
For this, you will get all of 6 years worth of limited coverage.
This law has no provisions in it requiring health insurance companies to maintain their current or to lower their premiums.
It DOES however, have provisions granting greater authority and power to the federal government by way of the IRS.
There are also provisions granting Congress the right to drop individuals coverage, meaning among other things, if you have a problem with your insurance provider, you will NOT be writing to the insurance company. Instead, you will be writing to Congress. Good luck with that.
Siting the socialized medicine of the UK as being a good thing, is a bad idea. In February it was announced that the government there is cutting back services due to excessive financial expenditures.
Lastly, the law will not grant 100?overage as promised, there are still an estimated 13 million Americans who will not qualify for coverage.
The real ironies are: Obama and company have made it a point to demonize doctors, pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies. When the AMA signed off, they were no longer targeted. The pharmaceutical companies emerged from their closed door negotiations with Obama, they agreed to an $80,000,000,000 loss in pprofits. In what world? Having agreed to this, they too were no longer targeted. The insurance companies have bore the brunt of the vilification. Last year, they claimed on average only 4?rofits. Hardly makes them a major threat as portrayed. So, who empowered these insurance companies? Hillary Clinton back when she was "first lady." She vilified and demonized doctors as being in a good old boy club who scratched one another's backs, ordered excessive expensive tests and medications all in the name of making a profit. She hatched her HMO scheme, stripping doctors of their decision making abilities and instead turned that process over to the for profit insurance companies. They would after all, keep an eye on the bottom line. All in the name of driving down the cost of health care. She failed miserably. And for her failure, she was first rewarded with a seat in the Senate and now as Secretary of State. The last bit of sad irony is that all the while Obama insisted that it was the Republicans who were fear mongers, in truth it was Obama who employed fear tactics. He threatened that if this bill did not pass, that we will go bankrupt. In truth, because it DID pass, we will now most assuredly end up in bankruptcy.
Study the history and then do the math. This new law is financially unsustainable. I suggest you explore via search engine the history and goals of the Cloward - Piven Strategy.

Actually Toenail C2, I did quote the CBO. If you were smart, you would have simply stated that the CBO is rarely ever correct on anything. And clearly, you are so bright, you know the difference between $100,000,00,000 and the $100,000,000,000,000 you hve so blithy stated. Brilliant. And they let people like you vote. And we notice too, the credible sources you site.
